A digital device for writing, reading and sketching that feels just like paper.

The reMarkable 2 is a digital notepad that looks to replace notebooks, printouts and document use but without sacrificing the pen-to-paper note taking experience.

Developed by a Norwegian start-up company, the device can be used to take handwritten notes, edit PDFs, sketch ideas and read e-books on its partial E-Ink display. It efficiently converts handwritten notes into typed texts which makes it convenient to rework on and share as emails, reports or presentations.

The device supports and recognises 33 languages and can identify both block letters and cursive input. Once saved, the documents can be easily accessed in popular cloud storage apps like Google Drive, Dropbox and Microsoft OneDrive directly from the tablet.

The device comes with the second-generation ‘Canvas’ 10.3- inch monochrome digital paper display and is surprisingly thin measuring in at just 4.7 millimetres – 30% thinner than the reMarkable 1. The gadget’s dimensions are 7.4 x 9.6 x 0.19-inches, and it weighs just 460g making it comfortable to handle.

The reMarkable 2 comes with a 1.2 GHZ dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage making it one of the most responsive digital paper tablets.

With a total of 8GB in internal storage, the device is good for about 100,000 pages of note taking, while the 3000mAh battery and USB-C charging capability give it around two weeks of usage between charges. ✤
